Venue & Accommodation

Venue | Avenue

Avenue is located in the hub of the V&A in between the Two Oceans Aquarium and The One & Only Cape Town. This multipurpose venue comprises of 948m2 of event space that will be the ideal location and setting for Attractions Africa 2015. This innovative venue has unique features such as unbelievable views of the harbour basin and Table Mountain and a 3861m3 predator tank (fingers crossed the tank will be full by the time of the conference!).

Accommodation | Protea Hotel Breakwater Lodge

Just a minute away from restaurants, theatres and shops, Protea Hotel Breakwater Lodge, is a perfectly positioned Cape Town hotel in the heart of the V&A Waterfront. Attractions Africa 2015 recommended the Breakwater Lodge as the preferred choice for accommodation. Situated directly opposite Avenue and the two Oceans Aquarium, delegates were but a quick walk away from the conference venue.
